Dr. Raja discusses the importance of multidisiplinary approaches to health and wellbeing in pregnancy and postpartum. He shares his rich and global perspective on how care providers can work together across roles to make sure that perinatal mothers are receiving the care they need.
Here are some of the topics we touch on:
*OB's are one part of the care team for pregnant mothers
*There might be different care pathways in different countries but if we are working together as a care team, we can "join the dots"
*How the World Health Organization defines health: physical mental and social well-being.
*Keep mothers and families in the heart of everything. "If you listen to the mothers and the families, you can never go wrong"
*Discussing Maternal Death and thoughts on prevention
*Identify and understand your role in the care of women, which includes making appropriate referrals and following up to make sure she gets support.
*Acknowledge your limitations as a provider and offer to find out more.
* The International Forum for Wellbeing In Pregnancy: Open access information resource to discuss and learn about different aspects of wellbeing in pregnancy, to understand different practices in different parts of the world.
